CinemaJaw 68, Jaw Retrospective 1996

Travel back 15 years with us

According to Wikipedia: 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year that started on a Monday. In the Gregorian calendar, it was the 1996th year of the Common Era, or of Anno Domini; the 996th year of the 2nd millennium; the 96th year of the 20th century; and the 7th of the 1990s. The year 1996 was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty… Yeah that went swell.

Nevertheless it was a fantastic year for film and Matt K and Ry the Movie Guy discuss the stats, best, worst and top 5 of the year. Also (you know) we get a trivia victim. All this plus I for an I and all the usual segments you’ve come to love.

CinemaJaw 61, Jaw Retrospective 1988

Please write us at and let us know what you think of the new Theme Song!!

Come out to the coast, we'll get together, have a few laughs...

This is our second “Jaw Retrospective” and I have to say we are liking this type of episode. It’s always fun to open a time capsule and see what life and the state of the art was. This time around we chose the year 1988, and it turned out to be a TREASURE TROVE of awesomeness! To say that some good movies came out this year would be a huge understatement. Some of the best films in our lifetime came out this year! Perhaps we remember them so fondly because they hit when we were young, but I think it’s more than that. We also have some interesting facts about that year, as well as the stats from the Oscars and the Box Office. Plus our usual antics: I for an I, Trivia, Hollywood Headlines, CinemaJaw Movie Fact, and more.

Its jam-packed with retroactive, hypercolor, moose-in-your-hair, fantastic-ness.
